STAFF from the Co-op distribution centre have been getting their hands dirty to help a charity.

Employees from the Pioneer Road-based centre gave a helping hand to Andover Young Carers in transforming its garden.

Led by Kathryn Uren, the distribution centre’s community engagement assistant, staff took two days to completely revitalise the seating at the Admirals Way charity’s base, creating a safe, corner play area where young carers will be able to enjoy the summer days.

Other businesses including Wickes, Brewers and Dobbie’s provided the resources needed for the works at the site to be completed.
